MZ-RH910 does not work with freshly charged battery

I have a couplke of Prismatic 1450 gumstick batteries and an external charger. The MZRH910 will not work with a freshly charged battery unless i first connect the Sony power supply, turn the MD on and off again, then disconnect the power supply. It will then work as normal until the battery is re-charged. any ideas?

SOURCE: cannot charge MZ RH910 through usb

Possible that there is fault within , can be a faulty battery, corrupt memory or a hung up processor. Try and reset if not the player has errors. It must switch on with the power connected if the battery is low.

My MD player does not operate? No display coming on the screen. Power is connected ok

Unfortunately if it's getting power but not responding there is little that you can realistically do. When you state "Power is connected ok" I presume that this means you have already tried using the gumstick rechargeable battery (which doesn't last forever, BTW), and also the charging stand. If you have tried both of these, then it's clearly not an obvious fault such as a broken power input socket. You can also try connecting the optional external dry battery case, but this was an optional item with the N-710 and rarely purchased by users, or you can try disconnecting the ac adaptor from the charging stand and connecting it directly via the socket on the player marked DC IN 3v.

The fault is likely a really simple one but the MZ-N710 and almost all other portable MD players were never designed to be repaired and consequently are really difficult to dismantle without causing more damage. When I used to sell these products I was told by the Sony servicing centre that for all but the most minor issues warranty claims were dealt with by destroying the returned unit and sending the customer a complete replacement.

Spare parts were not commonplace when the units were a current model, and now they're as common as freshly laid dodo eggs. Your only realistic fix is to replace the unit.

This may sound negative, but it's not: because MD is now an obsolete format there are millions of perfectly good units lying unused by those who have upgraded. Except for the later and far rarer HiMD models and also flagship regular units like the MZ-N910, almost everything else is near worthless so folks tend not to bother with selling them. As a result it's quite easy to pick up MD equipment for free via your local FreeCycle and Freegle groups; apart from my own MZ-N910 (still in regular use and has a far superior sound quality to any iPod) every piece of MD gear I own was obtained for free, usually with loads of minidiscs as well. Don't be too choosy about what you may be offered as most of the Sony NET MD players (any MZ-N model) can be easily hacked to give them most of the features of the flagship MZ-N910.

If you do end up recycling your MZ-N710, then keep all of the accessories as they can be used on other players which you might acquire.

I hope that my answer has been of use even if you cannot fix your player. Please take a moment to rate my answer.

Mz-n10 just died...after new battery install

Well, this is a bit late, but if you still have the N10, you must charge the internal battery enough for the external battery to work. You can run the internal battery dead enough that it won't recognize the external battery in this model.
Make sure, of course, that the battery switch is on, and that you have the correct charger.
